The internationally acclaimed Ariel String Quartet continues its debut season as quartet-in-residence at CCM with a performance at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 15, in UC’s Robert J. Werner Recital Hall. Tickets are on sale now.
Winners of the Fischoff Grand Prize, the Ariel Quartet was featured in a recent Cincinnati Enquirer article spotlighting “10 Who Are Advancing the Arts.” The Enquirer’s Janelle Gelfand writes, “The four musicians are turning heads for their fresh approach to chamber music, both in their exhilarating performances and in their teaching style. They are establishing a new era that could rival that of the LaSalle.” You can read the entire Enquirer article online here.
The Ariel Quartet’s Jan. 15 performance is scheduled to include Hugo Wolff’s Italian Serenade, CCM composer Joel Hoffman’s String Quartet No. 3 and Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 12 in E-Flat Major, Op. 127.
